French song is humming along.
In these troubled times, few artists are saying anything.
Gontard is an exception, with a few mavericks like Bruit Noir and Michel Cloup, sort of illegal children of Léo Ferré.
His latest album, "2029", is a concept album about his town, known for its shoes and ravioles, renamed "Gontard-sur-Misère".
In it, he describes life today, that of ugly roundabouts, industrial zones, inhuman liberalism, hollow "novlangue", upstart and corrupt elites.
All this in a relentless spoken word, set to a deceptive musical carpet, because it is pleasant and melodious, for a result that is at once moving, funny, biting and refreshing.
